Five Lessons from Jerusalem, Or That Time a Southern Girl in the Middle East Wrote On a Northerner’s Blog

The lovely Annie of This Northern Belle asked me to help hold down the fort in her corner of the Internet while she is off gallivanting in sun-soaked honeymoon bliss this week. (Congratulations, Annie! Wishing every blessing on your marriage!) She may be a Michigander, but now that she’s married to a fellow Texan, she’s basically family. Go check out my contribution to her “Things I’ve Learned” Series: “Things I’ve Learned [While Living in Jerusalem].”

Don't. Panic.

Don’t. Panic.

“There was this one time, a few months ago, when my husband and I rented a car to drive north to the Sea of Galilee, and the car rental place helpfully gave us a map to help us on our way. Later, we got a little lost and decided to refer to the map. And we suddenly realized the map was all in Hebrew.” Read the rest at This Northern Belle.

Now, let’s all just take a moment to aww at the adorable newlyweds… Read their sweet love story here. (I speak from experience when I say that falling in love with a really good old friend is a great way to do it!)
